Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King today posted a picture (https://twitter.com/bkdefend/status/348086884360130560/) of Miami Heat player Shane Battier with Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue and his son Spencer following the Heat's championship win last night over the San Antonio Spurs.

Battier played basketball at Duke before joining the NBA and Eddy Cue is a huge Duke basketball fan. Cue has posted a number of pictures of himself at Duke athletic events on his Facebook page. Cue earned his bachelors degree in Computer Science and Economics from Duke and his son Spencer is attending the school, while his son Adam graduated recently and is working on the popular email app Mailbox (http://www.cultofmac.com/211770/the-son-of-an-apple-senior-executive-is-working-on-mailbox-for-iphone/) which was recently purchased Dropbox.

A Duke student group recently wrote of visiting Cue (http://dukesiliconvalley.wordpress.com/2013/06/09/meeting-eddy-cue/) at his office at Apple's Results Way campus (http://www.macrumors.com/2011/07/21/apple-leases-major-new-office-campus-in-cupertino-to-support-continued-growth/) in Cupertino, saying it was decorated with Duke memorabilia:
Walking into Eddy Cue's office, it is impossible not to notice that he is an avid Duke Basketball fan. My roommate, Michael Marion, recalls regularly seeing him at basketball games in Durham. His walls were full of pictures of the team. After asking us about our majors, he led us to a nearby conference room where we could all sit down.

Hey, I would take full advantage if I was living like that too.:p

If you just glance at Shane's arm it looks like it's all the way around the two guys to his right.

So what does this mean? Has Cue finished working on Siri, iCloud, and Maps? Is iTunes Radio going as planned? He went to celebrate the NBA Championship, which means we could see a live NBA app included on every iPhone and iPad, and dubbed 'iNBA' or 'iTunes NBA', and Cue is having negotiations to grab the rights for live NBA on iOS. It will be US-only for the time being. He may have went there to show off a prototype 5-inch iPhone to Shane to see how it would feel for people with bigger hands. Cue going to the championship is truly one of the most important rumors of 2013.

Now THIS is how I would deliver MacRumors news :p

Well said. And that seems to be the case of recent.
It's not all bad, but there the occasional "why in hell is this even an article" moments. Apart from that, it's ok.

I hope you're joking... you can't be seriously implying that either of these things have anything to do whatsoever with the operations of Apple as a company.

Witty! Eddy is by all accounts is very savvy and astute businessman, apparently without the big ego that so often goes along with that, and he's responsible for some of APPLE's better moves lately. Good to see him have a life outside of APPLE as well.

So what? It's nice to read articles like this from time to time. You guys act like this was the only thing they posted all day.

If it doesn't interest you, feel free to not read the article.

Most of the country feels this way, but it was amazing for South Florida. Really brings the community together in a way that little else can. And regardless of what side you were on, you can't argue that it was a great series. Game 6? Ahhh!

Seems reasonable that an apple employee would be a bandwagon heat fan.

I laughed my ass off when they all started leaving in game 6.
